Wix abandons WordPress GPL editor fork for original MIT library

react-etc.net | Jan. 11, 2017 | 4 min read

Post script to the Wix/GPL #drama from last year. Wix has now forked from the editor WordPress originally forked from, which has an MIT licence, so basically everything is now fine.

Interesting how the post author concludes with: "this is a great reminder why to avoid using GPL licensed for library code like the plague."

Depends what you're building. If you're building something and you want some basic protections, that's what GPL is for. But if you want to build a library for general use, then MIT or other less restrictive licenses might be good.
